Silikids Siliskin Sippy & Straw Cup {Review}

When you’re the parent of a toddler, you know all about sippy cups. You know how important a good sippy cup is and how necessary it is for it to be leak-free. Nothing makes me angrier th5FnjE1uVan a sippy cup that leaks everywhere. If I wanted my toddler to spill sticky liquids everywhere, I would just give her a regular cup without a lid. What would make a sippy cup even better is a sippy lid that is universal and fits on any cup. While searching for a such a lid, I came across Silikids Siliskin Sippy Cup and Silicone Straw Cup. After reaching out to Silikids, I was kindly sent a fantastic sippy cup and straw cup.

Silikids is an innovative company, started in 2006, that’s main focus is products made of silicone. Silicone is a safe alternative to chemical-laced plastic. Silikids products are made of 100% food-grade silicone and they’re easy s500774824218195250_p40_i15_w640to clean and super easy to use.

Silikids silicone is:

  • Safe
  • Durable
  • Free of BPA, bisphenol-A, lead, PVC and phthalates.

I love using silicone cups instead of plastic when I can, and I just love Silikids’ sippy and straw cups! The cups are thick and extremely durable, my toddler is so rough with her cups and it’s really held up, it pretty much looks like I just took it out of the box. The lids are incredible! The lids are so soft, flexible and stretchy. To get liquid out of the spout, you have to gently bite down and suck, making it truly leak-free. The straw cup does leak but I chalk it up to being a regular straw. I love that they can be used with practically any kind of cup (depending on the width of the cup), as it stretches around the rim. It is secure enough to where it can be thrown and tossed around but it doesn’t budge from the cup. I love being able to just throw the silicone lid in my purse and take it with us when we go out to eat and not have to worry about bringing a sippy cup for my daughter. I just put the lid on a regular cup at the restaurant and she’s good to go!s500774824218195250_p41_i12_w640I give Silikids Siliskins Sippy Cup and Straw Cups a 5 out of 5 stars. Silikids’ cups are new staples in our household. I love how travel friendly they are and how easy they are to clean and use! I will say I can’t put the lid on the cup with one hand (as my 4 month old is s500774824218195250_p49_i2_w640always in my arms) but that’s the only “bad” thing I can say about it. Silikids has a lot of awesome and innovative products, we’ve even reviewed a few of them – Silikids Silicone Spoons & Bags and the Silikids Silibib. Be sure to check out their website to see their entire product line!

MAM Sippy Cups {Review}

13620749_1192619117469046_6551941352393575010_n.jpgHappy 40th Anniversary to MAM! What a huge accomplishment!

When my son was little, he had the most horrible reflux. He was on medication, slept at an incline and after two choking incidents, he was using a breathing monitor. Needless to say, we had to switch his food and bottles to help accommodate his needs. We ended up swearing by MAM! Their bottles were a lifesaver for us.

So of course we were thrilled to be able to review one of their hard spout sippy cups!128165

Their Fun to Drink cup is a pretty typical hard-spout cup, a new product to their line!

MAM Learn to Drink Cup, Unisex, 9 Ounces, 1-Count

  • A few silicone pieces on the inside slide in to create the seal for the spout. It’s important to remove all of these pieces when washing to eliminate the risk of harmful bacteria.
  • The cup was simple to assemble and it’s easy to take apart and wash.
  • The spout itself is a little longer than a typical spout, which I thought was great for little ones who are learning to use the spout or prefer straw cups; it gives them the sensation that they’re still using a straw.
  • The spout has three holes and so far, it has been totally leak proof for us.
  • The cup holds 9 ounces and comes in a variety of colors. It is recommended for babies 8+ months and it costs around $6.99.
  • It’s dishwasher safe. BPA-free, PVC-free, Lead-free,and CPSIA-compliant. It’s specially formulated to withstand steam sterilization in the microwave, as well.

 

Their Sports Cup is like a typical hard spout sippy, but the valve makes it function more like a water bottle.

MAM Sports Cup, Boy, 11 Ounces, 1-Count

  •  The spout comes apart completely for easy and thorough cleaning.
  •  It is larger than their other cups, it holds 11 oz and costs $6.99.
  • I really appreciated the cap for travel! I really don’t like when bottles or sippy cups aren’t able to be sealed. MAMSippy CUppy BurritoBUZz.png
  • Spill proof thanks to their patented valve system. I shook and messed with this cup and it was genuinely spill proof.
  • Easy to hold due to non-slip grip. It isn’t a completely smooth plastic.
  • Unique, curved shape
  • Eye catching designs.
  • The sports cup is recommended for ages 12 + months.
  • Like their other cups, it is also dishwasher safe. BPA-free, PVC-free, Lead-free and CPSIA-compliant.

Sippy Cup Product Review

There is anything but a shortage of sippy cups in our house! We have tried everything under the sun, so I thought I would go ahead and review a few that we have tried! (Because lets be honest, we can’t spend $100 to find the perfect one!)

Avent 12 oz Straw Cups

(9.99 for a 2 pack at Babiesrus)

This cup is technically 18months+ but if your child can suck from a straw this is the way to go.

Philips-AVENT-2-Pack-12--pTRU1-12110392dt

Pros

-It really is leak proof! I filled this cup with water and shook like crazy, and it did pretty well. I don’t think my child could shake hard enough (as I was) to get it to leak.

-The lid twists shut so the straw is protected from germs when not used.

-The size is perfect for tiny hands; he holds it on his own.

Cons

-When cleaning the cup, it comes apart into 5 pieces

-The lid can be a challenge to get on and off…and back together!

over all, we love these cups and our son does too.

Playtex Training Time Lil’ Grippers Straw Trainer

(5.99 for one at Babiesrus)

This cup is for 4months+

Playtex-TrainingTime-BPA-Free-Lil--pTRU1-18024557dt

Pros

-Very easy for little hands to hold

-Teaches child to use a straw

– Doesn’t leak for the most part

Cons

-So many parts to figure out! Not easy to get back together.

-If dropped it WILL leak!

-Not very big

This cup was a really nice cup for us! My son learned to use it very quickly, unfortunately he dropped it once and it broke! We now just use the handles on another Playtex cup, (review for that cup below!) which works really great!

Playtex Anytime (non-insolated)

(6.99 for a 2 pack at Babiesrus)

This cup is for 9months+

Playtex-2-Pack-AnyTime-Spout--pTRU1-8523524dt

Pros

-Leak proof

-Easy to hold

-Easy to clean (only one rubber piece inside)

Cons

-Lid can be hard to get on right

This is our everyday water cup, and is very easy to use! I love that there aren’t a lot of parts to get back together, and they are so easy to keep clean!

Product Review: Tommee Tippee Sippy Cups

image

PROS: In the world of sippy cups, the only thing that matters is does it spill. This cup truly does not. Now I can’t guarantee you that your LO will not take a sip and bubble it all back out over the living room carpet. However, when she rolls it down the entire length of the hallway, it won’t leak.

The cup has a two part piece within the lid that prevents spilling. There is also a built in cover for the mouth piece that is right on the lid to further prevent spills. You can see it in the picture above. It also has textured, rubber sides to help those slippery baby fingers to grab on a little better.

image

CONS: This cup is a little on the heavy side. I tried to give it to my LO when she was around 6-7 months and it was little too heavy for her when it was filled with juice or water. Also, it is dishwasher safe but you need to make sure that the pieces in the lid stay put after washing. They click into place so it’s not hard to put back in if it comes loose.  Lastly, it is a little on the pricier side when compared to other cups. It will run you anywhere from $7.99-9.99.

Overall, when it comes to infant and toddler sippy cups, this one is higher quality. It’s a little costly, but worth the investment if you want to prevent leaks. A good find, great to add to the baby registry!
